Well I'm not sure that they have an NTFS fsck program (anybody?), but you
can run the Windows NT Repair function from the installation boot disks. It
sounds like he's got a bad hard drive though, since he's getting an I/O
error. If he just wants to get his data off, he could try reinstalling NT
into a new directory and see if it will load. If that works, then he should
retrieve his data ASAP and then just repartition the drive and reinstall.
